As to what do they fish for? Clam Lake is a shallow lake with a large concentration of panfish...lots of mediocre northerns, bass and walleyes.

The panfish can be very nice; especially the crappies. It is a real fisherie, but in the late spring and early summer it weeds up bad!

I was there today and had a riot. Got there about 2:00 p.m and watched with my binoc's for about 15 minutes...not much action so I snoozed. A friend of mine has been going there and said about 3:30 they have been turning on. I awakened and saw a guy stuck with his pickup...not bad...and looked at him with binocs. It was my friend. He had a brown truck which I was looking or and couldnt see. The reason was of the salt...it looked white. I reognized him and he came back over and hooked on to his Frabill. He said he had been fishing about 100 yards from me for two hours catching nothing, but pointed over to where he got stuck and said he "found em there
! I had 25 nice gills so fast it would make your head swim. In an hour it was non-stop action. Threw lots of decent gill back to leave with 25. It was simply fun...7 feet of water and they fought. Caught one of those big crappies....I mean there are crappies in there that hold up to Red Lake...I know cuz I also fish Red Lake.

Anyway...if you fish the tourney...have fun. I personally dont fish tournaments ...I hate crowds.

the contest is from 9am to 3pm. it sounds like a high of 10 degrees - so dress warm. it'll be on the north side of hwy 70, across from big mikes. they have a ton of prizes, like tv's, hotel stays, mtn. bike, etc. the lake has panfish, pike, walleye and bass. the river runs between the two lakes (it runs under the hwy 70 bridge) and runs along the west side of the lake, so don't drive over there. there's a decent size village of houses out there now. the dnr HSOforum has the lake map. there's probably close to 36" of ice now, so plan accordingly! its nothing fancy or pro-angler bound - just a local fishing contest.

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
